Episode 1138 – Transform Your Marketing with Effective Calls to Action

Clear Call to Action

Mike Campion and Jackson Pinkoski kick things off by emphasizing the importance of a clear call to action (CTA) in your marketing. Too often, business owners spend money on paid traffic only to direct potential customers to a website that talks all about the business without offering a solution to the customer’s problem. A clear CTA should invite potential customers to take a specific action, like scheduling a call or requesting a quote. Without this, all the effort and money spent on advertising can feel wasted.

Avoid Weak Calls to Action

They point out that a weak call to action, like “Call now for a free estimate,” is almost as bad as having no CTA at all. This kind of message doesn’t provide enough incentive or clarity about what the customer can expect. People visiting your site are likely comparing several options, so your CTA needs to stand out by promising something more concrete and valuable. For example, instead of just offering a free estimate, explain how this will save them time or solve a specific problem.

Be Specific and Offer Value

Mike and Jackson stress the importance of being specific in your CTA. Instead of a vague “Call now,” you could say, “Call now for a 5-minute conversation that will save you 10 hours a month.” This gives potential customers a clear idea of what to expect and what they will gain. The more specific and valuable your offer, the more likely it is to convert visitors into customers.

Follow Up with Value

Once someone takes action, it’s crucial to follow up with more value. If a customer fills out a form on your website, don’t just thank them and promise to get back to them. Tell them exactly what will happen next and how quickly they can expect a response. This keeps them engaged and reassured that their problem is being addressed. Clear communication at this stage can prevent them from continuing to shop around.

Keep It Simple

Jackson wraps up by advising to keep your call to action simple and straightforward. Complicated or clever CTAs can confuse potential customers and cause them to move on. Remember, at each step of the sales process, you’re asking for their time and attention in exchange for value. Make sure each interaction is easy to understand and promises clear benefits.

In summary, a clear, specific, and valuable call to action can significantly improve your marketing efforts. It ensures that your potential customers know exactly what to do next and what they will gain, making them more likely to choose your service over others.
